We have been saddened to hear of the passing of Jim Aldridge following a long battle with cancer. Jim was a volunteer at SAADI Gymnastics Ltd for 50 years and will be greatly missed in the Hertfordshire community.
Jim passed away peacefully on Saturday 30th May at his home, surrounded by his family.
Jim was one of the founders of SAADI Gymnastics and alongside his wife Jackie, took over the running of the club in 1981. Through his 50 years in the sport, he supported many gymnasts through his coaching and mentoring, as well as tutoring some of the coaches of the future.
Jim was a member of the Hertfordshire Committee and was a county coach for many years.
We would like to send our deepest sympathies to Jim’s family and friends, and to everyone involved at the club.
